* Its a compass who tracks the nearest player in the world;
* It also only works if the player is on the same dimension as yours;
* You can use a trigger to track a specific player;

* It will not target dead players and players in spectator mode, unless in specific player targeting mode;
* You must use another trigger to see the Player ids;

* Players will drop their heads when killed by another player (they have a 3% of chance for dropping it without being killed by a player);

* Use the tag "no_player_compass" to immune players from targeting;
* Use the command "/trigger player_compass set <value>" (replace value with player id) to target only a specific player;
* Values of 0 or your own id, resets the compass to the nearest player;

* You can also use the command "/trigger ids" to see the online player IDs;

* To get the Player Compass, you must place any player head and any compass anywhere inside the crafting table, like this:

and it will output an knowledge book who will be replaced with the Player Compass later
